The New Math in Wrentham: Additions can happen despite subtractions

Posted by Ralph Ranalli July 12, 2008 08:44 AM

Despite cutting nearly eight full-time positions, Wrentham’s elementary schools will expand foreign language instruction next year, Superintendent Jeffrey Marsden said.

A part-time instructor already teaches Spanish to children in the fourth, fifth, and sixth grades, and a new part-time teacher will be added to teach children in the first, second, and third grade, [all grade levels], Marsden said.

Kindergartens will also receive instruction if scheduling allows, Marsden said.

He said he would also like to add Chinese instruction in the next several years.
